As the dust settled following the dramatic evacuation at Kabul airport, Georgia has received acknowledgement and praise for its role in providing critical assistance to the US and the Western partners.
According to information obtained by EURACTIV , during the evacuation since 14 August, three C-17 Globemaster III military transport aircrafts of the US Heavy Airlift Wing (HAW), operating as part of the Strategic Airlift Capability (SAC) program, had been deployed to Tbilisi International Airport. The aircrafts have been conducting regular flights on the route Tbilisi-Kabul-Tbilisi to evacuate military and civilian personnel from Afghanistan.
Up to 20 flights have been conducted from Kabul to Tbilisi and approximately 2,500 people have been evacuated. During these missions Georgia’s airspace and its territory was used as a transit route from Afghanistan . . . https://www.euractiv.com/section/eastern-europe/news/eu-us-nato-enormously-grateful-for-georgias-role-in-kabul-evacuations/
